            State Pay Revision will be continued.

      (i)        In all cases of time bound higher Grade promotions to higher scales of pay
                 (obviously not involving change of duties and responsibilities), the existing
                 practice may continue. Thus, the pay in the higher time scale will be fixed in
                 terms of Rule 28 A Part I KSRs i.e. a notional increment will first be given in the
                 lower scale and thereafter pay in the promoted scale will be fixed at the next
                 stage above. No subsequent refixation of pay, based on the change of pay in the
                 scale of the lower posts, will be allowed. The next increment in the higher scale
                 will fall due on completion of 12 months from the date of coming over to the
                 higher scale. He will, of course, have the option to avail the higher grade on a
                 subsequent date not later than the date of his next increment in the lower scale.
   (ii)          In all cases of regular promotions from time bound grades to posts carrying the
                 same or higher time scale of pay, the pay in the promoted scale will be fixed in
                 terms of Rule 30 Part I KSRs. The next increment in the same or higher scale
                 will fall due on the date of increment in the time bound grade post.
  (iii)          In all cases of regular promotions, including ratio based promotions, to posts
                 carrying higher time scale of pay, the minimum of which does not exceed
                 Rs.36140/- (whether it involves change of duties and responsibilities or not) pay
                 in the promoted scale will be fixed as per the provisions of Rule 28 A Part I
                 KSRs without refixation of pay in the higher scale consequent on change of pay
                 in the lower scale. Next increment in the higher time scale will fall due only on
                 completion of 12 months from the date of fixation of pay, in the higher time scale
                 of pay under Rule 28 A. Promotees will be given opportunity to elect the date on
                 which their pay is to be fixed in the higher time scale of pay under Rule 28 A.
                 Two options as indicated below will be available to the promotees for fixation of
                 pay under Rule 28 A.
Option (a)         Pay will be fixed in the higher time scale of pay, on the date of promotion,
                   under Rule 28 A. Next increment in the higher time scale will fall due only on
                   completion of one year from the date of such fixation of pay.
                                                    OR


                                                    14
Option (b)         Pay on the date of promotion will be initially fixed at the stage of the higher
                   time scale of pay of the promoted post next above the pay in the lower time
                   scale of pay. Thereafter fixation of pay under Rule 28 A will be allowed,
                   based on the pay in the lower post on the date opted by the promotee, ie. on the
                   date of increment in the lower post. Next increment will fall due only on
                   completion of one year from the date of fixation of pay under Rule 28 A. If
                   the fixation of pay under Rule 28 A on the date of option does not make any
                   change in the pay in the higher time scale, the pay of the promotee will remain
                   at the same stage till completion of one year from the date of initial fixation
                   (date of promotion) of pay in the higher time scale. Next increment in such
                   cases will be allowed on completion of one year from the date of initial
                   fixation of pay in the higher time Scale of pay. The option to be exercised will
                   be in the following forms.

            ………………………….. FN/AN, I hereby opt the fixation of pay under Rule 28 A,
            in the higher scale of pay of the promoted post, with effect from the date of promotion,
            without any review consequent on accrual of increment in the lower post.
*     Consequent upon my promotion as ……………………….. with effect from
         …………………. FN/AN, I hereby opt the initial fixation of my pay at the stage in the
         time scale of pay of the promoted post next above my pay in the scale of pay of the
         lower post on the date of promotion, and thereafter under Rule 28 A in the higher scale
         of pay of the promoted post based on the pay in the lower post with effect
         from……………………. ie from the date of accrual of next increment in the scale of
         pay of the lower post.

                                                                  Designation:
*Strike off whichever is not applicable.
    (iv)         In all cases of regular promotions including ratio based promotions to posts
                 carrying higher time scale of pay, the minimum of which exceeds Rs.36140/-
                 [i.e. under Rule 37 (a)] the pay, of the promotee, on the higher time scale will be
                 initially fixed at the stage next above his pay in the lower time scale of pay. In
                 such cases if this pay in the lower scale becomes equal to this pay in the higher
                 scale consequent on accrual of increment in the lower scale, his pay in the higher
                 scale will be fixed at the next higher stage in the higher scale of pay with effect
                 from that date. The next increment in the promoted post will be allowed only
                 after completion of one year service from this date.
      (v)        Where promotion posts happen to have the same scale of pay of the feeder
                 category posts, the existing practice will continue ie. one advance increment will
                 be granted to the incumbents appointed by promotion to the posts carrying the

                                                  15
            scale of pay of feeder category posts. This advance increment will not be granted
            in the case of promotion from time bound higher grade to a regular promotion
            post in the same scale of pay and in the case of appointment to interchangeable
            posts in the same scale of pay.
(vi)        In cases of up gradation of posts or appointments to higher posts on the advice of
            PSC or otherwise (in respect of persons already in State Government Service)
            pay will be fixed under Rule 28 A Part I Kerala Service Rules, the option shall be

         Rules for fixation of pay in the revised scale.
1.      The revised scales of pay shall come into force w.e.f. 01-07-2009.
2.      Existing scale of pay for the purpose of these rules is the scale of pay
        immediately prior to 01-07-2009.
3.      Existing emoluments for the purpose of these rules shall be the total
        of :
           (a)      Basic pay in the existing scales as on the date of change
                    over to the revised scale including the increments, if any,
                    accruing on such date in the existing scale. Stagnation
                    increments shall also be reckoned for this.
           (b)      Personal pay, if any, not specifically ordered to be absorbed
                    in future increase of pay.
           (c)      Special pay drawn in lieu of higher time scale of pay,
                    provided there is no special pay attached to revised scale.
           (d)      Dearness Allowance admissible at the rate of 64% on such
                    pay vide (a), (b) and (c) above.
                    Note: - Special pay, in addition to the pay drawn in the existing
                    scale shall not be reckoned for fixation of pay in the revised scale.


        Fitment benefit and Service weightage
     4. To the existing emoluments computed above, shall be added an
        amount equal to 10% of basic pay subject to a minimum of Rs. 1000/-
        in Rule (3) (a) and (b) above towards fitment benefit and another
        amount equivalent to ½% of basic pay, specified in Rule (3) (a) and
        (b) above, for each completed year of service subject to a maximum
        of 30 completed years, towards service weightage.
                 Note: - Service for the purpose of this rule means service including
                 broken periods of service qualifying for normal increments in the
                 scale of pay. Time spent on leave not counting for normal
                 increment will not be reckoned.      Service during the period of bar
                 on increment, without cumulative effect will be reckoned. However
                 aided school service in Govt and vice versa will be reckoned for
                 weightage.




                                            1
     5.    The amount so arrived at under Rule (4) above shall be stepped up
          to the next stage in the revised scale of pay.
           If the amount arrived at under Rule (4) above is more than the
          maximum of the revised scale, the pay shall be fixed at the maximum
          of the revised scale and the difference shall be treated as personal
          pay and it will not be absorbed in future increase in pay on account
          of granting increments. This personal pay will count for all purposes
          viz; fixation of pay, calculation of leave salary, drawal of allowance
          and pension.


          Stepping up of Pay of Seniors
6.        In cases, where a senior government servant promoted to a higher
          post before 01.07.2009, (including through grant of time bound
          higher grade) draws less pay in the revised scale than his Junior
          promoted to the higher post after 01.07.2009, the pay of the senior
          employee shall be stepped up to the level of the pay of the junior
          w.e.f. the date on which junior draws more pay, provided that
             (a)   The senior and the junior employee should belong to the
                   same category and should have been promoted to the same
                   category of post.
             (b)   The pre-revised and revised scale of pay of the lower and
                   higher posts in which they are entitled to draw pay should
                   be identical.
             (c)   The senior Government servant at the time of promotion
                   has been drawing equal or more pay than the junior
             (d)   The anomaly should have arisen directly as a result of the
                   introduction of the revised scale of pay
             (e)   The anomaly should not have arisen due to the option
                   exercised on different dates or due to any advance
                   increments granted to the junior in the lower post or due to
                   increased service weightage to the junior.
                   Note: - (i) If in the lower post, the junior employee was drawing
                               more pay in the pre-revised scale than the senior, the
                             senior to such junior will have no claim over the pay
                             of the junior.
                         (ii) In case where pay of an employee is stepped up in terms
                           of clause (6) above, the next increment shall be granted
                           after completing the required service of one year in the
                           new scale from the date of stepping up of pay.


                                          2

           (2) However, if an employee wishes to opt the revised scale of
               pay of his promoted post ie. the next immediate promotion

               fixed on the basis of the pay he drew in the pre-revised scale
               of the promoted post on that date. This benefit will be
               restricted to the employees who were promoted in between
               1.7.2009 and the date of issue of Pay Revision Order. Also

              K.S.Rs

      probation on 1.7.2009 or on the date of change over to the new scale
      will also be allowed the benefit of fixation of pay notionally counting
      the increment accrued but withheld, in relaxation of Rule 37 B(b),

                                         3
      Part I Kerala Services Rules, subject to the condition that the next
      increment after such fixation will be allowed only after he is declared
      to have satisfactorily completed his probation and the period of
      approved service required to earn an increment.
11.   In the case of an employee whose pay has been reduced with the
      effect of postponing future increments, fixation of pay in the revised
      scale will be allowed on the basis of the option exercised by him but
      he has to remain in that pay till the expiry of the period of reduction.
      The pay will, however, be fixed on the date of expiry of the period of
      reduction. The next increment in such cases will be allowed only on
      completion of approved service required to earn an increment from
      the date of such fixation.


      Exercise of Option
12.   An employee can exercise option to come over to the revised scale of
      pay with effect from 01.07.2009 or with effect from any subsequent
      date he opts.
13.   The option in writing is to be exercised within a period of six months
      from the date of Government orders revising the scales of pay.
14.   The option is to be filed with the officer competent to fix his/her pay
      in the form appended.
15.   The option once exercised shall be final. In the case of subsequent
      reversion (after the exercise of option as per these rules), the
      employee will be allowed to exercise option in respect of the lower
      post also, provided such option is exercised within a period of three
      months from the date of orders of reversion.
16.    Re option will not be allowed for any pay revision(including the
      present pay revision) except in cases involving retrospective revision
      or change in scale of pay that takes effect on a date prior to the date
      of option exercised by the employee for the concerned pay revision.
      In such cases arrears of salary/pension will be payable only with
      effect from the date of filing of the option such re-option has to
      exercised within 3 month of the date of issue of the order
      revising/changing the scale of pay retrospectively .
17.   An employee is allowed to exercise option only in respect of existing
      scale. If no option is exercised within the said period of six months
      of the date of Government orders revising the scale of pay of the
      Government employees, the date of effect of pay revision order ie.
      01.07.2009 shall be treated as the date of option and the Officer


                                     4
      competent to fix his/her pay is to proceed accordingly.                No
      subsequent option shall be entertained.
18.   If an employee dies before the expiry of the time fixed for option and
      without exercising option, the officer competent to fix his/her pay in
      the revised scale of pay shall fix his/her pay with effect from the date
      which is more advantageous to the survivors of the deceased. If the
      deceased is a Gazetted Officer the head of department and if the
      deceased himself was the head of department, the Secretary to
      Government concerned, in consultation with the Accountant General
      (A&E) will fix the date of option of the deceased employee, which is
      found to be more advantageous to the beneficiary.
19.   An employee on leave or on deputation or under suspension will be
      allowed to exercise option with in a period of six months from the
      date of return to duty.
20.   Persons whose service were terminated on or after 01.07.2009 and
      who could not exercise the option within the prescribed time limit on
      account of death, discharge on the expiry of the sanctioned posts,
      resignation, dismissal or discharge on disciplinary ground are
      entitled to the benefits of the aforesaid rules.
21.   In the case of employees whose increment in the pre-revised scale is
      barred as punishment without cumulative effect, their pay on the
      date of option (if it is w.e.f. a date on which the increment bar is in
      force) in the revised scale will be fixed on the basis of the pay
      notionally arrived at by counting increment each, in the pre-revised
      scale, for every competed year of service which would have been
      counted for normal increment, but for the punishment. The next
      increment in the revised scale will be sanctioned only after expiry of
      the remaining period of increment bar as on the date of fixation of
      pay in the revised scale, subject to Rule (9) of Pay Fixation Rules.
22.   In the case of employees whose increment in the pre-revised scale is
      barred as punishment with cumulative effect, their pay on the date of
      option (if it is w.e.f. a date on which the increment bar is in force) will
      be fixed on the basis of the pay they were drawing immediately
      before increment bar. They will be entitled to the pay at the same
      rate till the expiry of the period of increment bar. The next increment
      in the revised scale will be sanctioned only after expiry of the period
      of increment bar subject to Rule (9) of Pay Fixation Rules.
23.   In the case of employees whose pay in the pre-revised scale is
      reduced to lower stage as penalty temporarily, their pay in the
      revised scale will be fixed on the date of option (if it is w.e.f a date
      on which the reduction in pay is in force) on the basis of the pay after


                                       5
            reduction in the pre-revised scale. The next increment that will
            accrue in the revised scale in terms of Rule (9) of the above rules will
            be sanctioned only after the expiry of the remaining period of
            penalty.
24.         In the case of employees whose pay in the pre-revised scale is
            reduced permanently to lower stage as penalty with the effect of
            postponing future increments, his pay in the revised scale will be
            fixed on the date of option on the basis of the reduced pay in the
            pre-revised scale. They will have to remain in that pay till expiry of
            the period of reduction. The next increment that will accrue in the
            revised scale will be sanctioned only after expiry of the remaining
            period of penalty.
25.         The employees who continue on Leave Without Allowance (LWA)
            on or after 01.07.2009 will be allowed to exercise option within 6 (six)
            months of return to duty.

            Principles of Option
 26.        The employees may be allowed to exercise option subject to the
            following conditions.
       a)        A Government servant holding a post under the Government on
                 the day before the date of coming into effect of the pay revision
                 may exercise option to continue in the existing scale till the date
                 on which he/she earns his/her next increment in the existing
                 scale of pay or until he/she vacates his/her post or ceases to
                 draw pay in that scale, whichever is earlier. The date of effect of

                                           6
     the option shall not in any case go beyond one year from the
     date of order of pay revision.
b)   In the case of a Government servant who died on or after the
     date of coming into effect of the pay revision, but before
     exercising option, he/she may be deemed to have opted for the
     revised scale from the most beneficial date as desired by the
     Head of office, Accountant General or the department, as the
     case may be.
c)   The option to retain the existing scale of pay shall be admissible
     in respect of one existing scale only. On subsequent reversion,
     the Government servant concerned may exercise option in
     respect of the lower post also on condition that such option will
     be exercised within three months from the date of reversion,
     failing which he/she will be deemed to have opted for the scale
     with effect from the date of pay revision.
d)   If a Government servant exercises option to come over to the
     revised scale with effect from a date beyond one year from the
     date of pay revision such option shall be deemed to be invalid
     and shall be treated as a failure to exercise option and he/she
     shall be deemed to have exercised option with effect from the
     date of pay revision.
e)   The option shall be exercised in writing and communicated to
     the Head of office or the Accountant General, respectively by the
     non-Gazetted officers and Gazetted officers within six months
     from the date of pay revision order failing which the
     Government servant will be deemed to have opted for the scale
     with effect from the date of coming into effect of the pay
     revision and pay fixed on that basis.
f)   A Government servant who is out of India on leave or
     deputation or Foreign Service, on the date of pay revision order
     shall exercise option in writing within three months from the
     date of his taking charge of the old post.
g)   A Government servant, who is under suspension on the date of
     coming into effect of the pay revision, shall exercise option
     within three months from the date of return to duty on re-
     instatement or within six months from the date of pay revision
     order whichever is later.
h)   Option once exercised shall be final and permission for re-option
     will not be granted on any account.




                               7
i)   Heads of Departments and Offices shall give proper guidance to
     their subordinates to select the most beneficial dates for
     exercising option, since re-option will not be allowed for
     rectification of the wrong option already exercised or for other
     reasons.
j)   In cases, where persons promoted after the date of pay revision,
     have been given retrospective promotion with effect from a date
     in the pre-revision period, they will exercise option in respect of
     the revised scale of the post within three months from the date
     of orders sanctioning such promotion. They will be eligible for
     arrears if any, as per rules.
k)   Heads of Departments and Officers should be given the
     responsibility to see that the contents of the pay revision orders
     are communicated to their subordinates, including those who
     are on leave, deputation and on Foreign Service, so as to enable
     them to exercise option within the time limit specified in the pay
     revision order. The fixation rules may be published prominently
     in Notice Board.

(4) For direct recruits against posts carrying the scales of Rs. 22360-37940 to
    Rs. 29180-43640 one higher grade promotion in the scale as shown below
    will be given on completion of 8 years of service.

       Revised scale of pay in the entry post        Time bound higher grade for 8
                                                    years of service in the entry post.
                   22360-37940                                 24040-38840
                   24040-38840                                 29180-43640
                   29180-43640                                 36140-49740

(5) For incumbents of posts on scales of pay above Rs. 29180-43640, no time
    bound higher grade will be allowed.
(6)     If there is a promotion post in respect of the categories of posts (entry)
      coming under pay range from Rs. 8730-13540 to Rs. 16980-31360 and its
      scale of pay is higher than the time bound higher grade proposed above,
      then the qualified incumbent will be given the scale of pay of the
      promotion post in the direct line of promotion as time bound higher
      grade. While assigning higher grade only qualified hands will get the
      scales of pay of regular promotion posts. Unqualified hands will be
      allowed the next higher scale of pay above that of the scale of pay of the
      post held at that time, in the standard scales of pay.

                                                2
(7)    If the scale of pay of the promotion post is lower than the time bound
      higher grade proposed in the Table, the scale of pay of time bound
      higher grade specified above will be given by reckoning the total service
      in both the lower post and promotion post together. In such cases the
      fixation under Rule 30 Part I - K.S.R. will be admissible.
(8)    In all cases of regular promotions from time bound grades to posts
      carrying the same or higher time scale of pay, the pay in the promoted
      scale will be fixed in the terms of Rules 30, Part I KSR.
(9)   In respect of catagories of post coming under the pay scale ranging from
      Rs. 14620-25280 to 21240-37040 the time bound higher grade will be as
      specified in Table II of Annex- III. Scales of pay of promotion post will
      not be given in these cases. This is applicable in the case of employee
      enjoying scale of pay 14620-25280 and above whether by regular
      promotion or by time bound higher grade. Corresponding revised scale
      of pre-revised grade scale (as per annexure-I) will not be allowed in such
      cases.

(10 ) In the case of time bound grade promotion to higher scale of pay, the
      pay in the higher time scale will be fixed in terms of Rule 28 A Part I
      KSR ie. one notional increment will be given and thereafter the pay in
      the higher grade scale will be fixed at the next stage above the pay in the
      lower time scale, as on the date of the higher grade promotion,
      irrespective of whether it is a stage in the higher time scale or not.
      Refixation based on due date of increment in the lower scale will not be
      given.
(11) In case the 15/22 year higher grades as per the table above are equal to
     or lower than the first promotion post/ second promotion post as the
     case may be, that grade (s) will be modified and fixed at the next higher
     scale (s) above that of the promotion post (s) in the list of standard scales
     of pay.
(12) Non-teaching staff in Aided Schools, Private Colleges and Polytechnics
     who come under the scheme of direct payment of salary by Government
     are also eligible for time bound grade promotion subject to the above
     conditions.
(13) The service rendered in the entry post and reckoned for normal
     increments may be treated as the qualifying service for granting higher
     grades in that post.
(14) The term ‘entry post’ shall be defined as the post to which an employee
     is initially appointed in Government service by direct recruitment by the
     competent authority. Appointments made by PSC by transfer from
     other categories will also be treated as equivalent to direct recruitment
     for allowing the benefit of higher grade. However, promotion to a post
     in the direct line of promotion in a Department to be made on the basis
                                      3
     of select list prepared by the Departmental Promotion Committee,
     cannot be treated as direct recruitment for allowing the benefit of time
     bound higher grade. The time bound higher grade admissible will be
     determined with reference to the initial entry post in the present
     department only. Service in different posts having same scale will not
     be treated as qualifying service. Similarly in the case of employees who
     get inter departmental transfer (interdepartmental transferees), their
     prior service in the same post in the former department may also be
     reckoned as qualifying service for time bound higher grade. Those who
     get regular promotion or appointment to higher posts within the period
     specified for each time bound higher grade may not be granted further
     time bound higher grade during that period.
(15) All appointment by transfer except the promotions/appointments from
     subordinate service to State Service may also be treated as equivalent to
     direct recruitment for sanctioning Time Bound Higher Grade.
(16) Those who relinquish regular promotions will not be given time bound
     higher grades as at present.
(17) The employees in the scales of pay of Rs. 8730-13540 and Rs. 8960-14260
     will be eligible for reckoning their service in the last grade for allowing
     22 years higher grade. This benefit will not be allowed to employees in
     the posts having the revised scale of Rs. 9190-15780 and above.
(18) Military service which will count for civil pension of Ex-serviceman will
     be reckoned as qualifying service for allowing first higher grade.
     However ex-servicemen enjoying protection of pay will not be allowed
     this benefit. In that case service under State Government alone will be
     reckoned as qualifying service. Period of leave on loss of pay which will
     not be taken, into account for granting increments will not be reckoned
     as qualifying service.
(19) All other existing general terms and conditions governing grant of time
     bound higher grade promotions may continue subject to the
     modifications issued by Government from time to time.
